In just one week, Big Freedia and her crew return to TV sets nationwide for the long awaited Season 2 premiere of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. Expect more drama, flashier gigs and a full-on push to bring bounce music to the mainstream.
Fans who tuned in to Season 1 of Fuse's award-winning docu-series witnessed plenty of eyebrow-raising, jaw-dropping scenes. While the cameras captured countless divarish moments between Freedia and her team members, we've rounded up our favorites right here.
Season 1 kicked off with a collaborative "King and Queen of Bounce" tour effort featuring New Orleans rapper Mr. Ghetto, whose ego didn't quite mesh with Team Freedia...
Manager Renee hired renowned choreographer Frank Gatson to be Freedia's creative director while on tour in Brazil. As the crew drove through the booty capital of the world, Gatson shared one crucial piece of advice with Freedia: "You have to f-ck the audience, and they have to f-ck you back!"
The idea of elementary students getting down to bounce music seemed so outlandish that even Sissy Nobby was skeptical. Freedia, who was invited to speak to a class, was determined to record a bounce track for kids. Check out these young'ns twerking alongside the Queen Diva!
In this exclusive web extra, bounce music's biggest divas head out for an evening at Rock 'N' Bowl. Despite Sissy Nobby announcing that he doesn't do "these types of sports" and prefers showing off in the studio instead, Freedia and Katey Red challenge him to a friendly game of bowling. Watch as the trio snaps selfies and overcomes multiple gutter balls in this hilarious outtake.
What's the best way to gain a city's attention?
Bring your entire dance crew out to busy Canal Street and start twerking around cars, against cars and on top of cars—in the middle of traffic. Freedia shoots her music video for "Duffy" early on in the season, and the result was pretty epic.
